Together, Apart: A Virtual Sunset Dining Experience
Jul 19 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Introducing a new event for 2020!

In lieu of our annual mountaintop Sunset Dining celebration, this year we want to bring the party to you

Please join The Free Clinics for a unique benefit event featuring a farm-to-fork multi-course gourmet meal and wine delivered to your home, along with an exclusive online program of live music and patient stories. 

A delicious five-course meal will be prepared by Food Experience of Asheville, with accompanying wine from Crate Wine Market & Project, all then delivered by The Free Clinics staff and volunteers to you at home. Once you receive your meal, tune in to our online program to enjoy a special musical performance, followed by program updates from executive director Judith Long, Phoenix Project case manager Kerri Sanders, and hear a personal story from one of our patients. 

All contributions for this benefit support the increased need in our community for The Free Clinics’s services during the current pandemic and economic crisis. 

Due to the nature of this event, meals may only be delivered to addresses in the Asheville/Henderson/Polk area in order to best preserve the integrity of the food. Thank you for your understanding and support. 

Please stay tuned for registration details.

The Plunge!
Aug 30 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Our 2nd annual celebrity PLUNGE will take place on August 30th, 2020! Please stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, check out pics from our inaugural splash HERE (by Amy Jackson, Karmalized Pictures). 

You can save your favorite Plungee from the dreaded fate that awaits them at Kanuga Lake! Help them reach their FUNdraising goal—and win the coveted “Golden Plunger” award—to avoid making a splash and save them from taking “the plunge.”  Funds raised will support The Free Clinics.

Bring your swimsuits and picnic blankets and join us for a fun afternoon at Kanuga Lakeside Pavilion on scenic Kanuga Lake, as local celebrities take the plunge for health!

Volunteer Information Session
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Did you know that you don’t need a medical background to volunteer at The Free Clinics?

In addition to our clinical volunteers, many opportunities exist for volunteers with skills as varied as front desk reception, building maintenance, Spanish interpreting, gardening, bicycle repair, and more!

Join us to learn more about available volunteer opportunities at The Free Clinics!

We will present a brief overview of all of the positions and duties that need volunteer assistance to keep The Free Clinics operational, and take you on a short tour of our facility.

The Free Clinics would not be able to continue in our mission of providing access to quality healthcare to our neighbors in need without volunteers like you. Now is a great time to find out how you can help!
